Most of us are born with the capacity to lead, but only those who learn and develop the necessary skills will ever become leaders. This work shows us that the "natural born leader" is one whom others perceive that way. He or she demonstrates certain learnable skills in a way that seems effortless and gains willing followers. This approach to leadership presents the "108 skills" under three major areas: foundation skills, such as self awareness establishing rapport, displaying a sense of humour, clarifying expectations; leadership direction skills, such as setting a course, getting another perspective, monitoring change and attracting rising stars; gain willing-follower skills, such as building credability, influencing others, creating a motivating environment, using statistics, stories and metaphors. This book also includes a 54-item self-assessment inventory to help readers gauge where they need more skill-building.
